Brickmasons in Colonial Days

John Kingston of York County was a brickmason in possession of a good estate in York County. Among those indebted to him for work done in the course of his trade was Robert Booth whose inventory of estate showed an account in Kingston's favor of seven pounds sterling. Another brickmason in the county was Edwin Malin who purchased fifty acres and built his plantation.  Others were Thomas Meders, Richard Burk, Robert Wiiggins and Thomas Wade. In 1681 John Franklin of Accomack County purchased 550 acres of land.
